    I just saw the premiership odds,they had all the top 8 listed plus the Raiders! who are 10th but not us in 9th position. What a disgrace not even listed!

    So they don't even rate our chances!

    Talk about a slap in the face.

    Mary if your reading this can you use this as motivation and let the team know and prove them wrong.

    St.Georgio , agree with you about our Mr. Mcidiot , however there is a chance that the Cowboys may miss out .

    Undoubtedly the Panthers are coming home at the rate of knots and we will certainly need to beat them and the Broncos and finally , rub the Bullgrubs noses into the WIN Stadium turf .

    But as they say , stranger things have happen . Perhaps the footy gods may decide to shine some good fortune, upon our beloved Dragons , to turn this into reality .

    Don't get mad, (try to) get even.

    Give them a call and see if they'll offer you odds on the boys to make the eight...and do it before we beat the Donkeys on Friday :wink:

    I think the Cows are shot their place in the 8 is the one most in peril IMO.

    Unfortunately, Gareth we won't be rubbing grubs noses into WIN turf mate, it's another of our 'home' games at ANZ.

    I drove past Jubilee Oval today, mentioned to my son that's another reason why we are not in the top 4, we're away from our spiritual home ground, another great decision by Doust!

    Gentleman, talking about making things difficult , honestly , another home game away and of all places at the Bullgrubs 2nd bone-hole .

    It's always the little things that will stuff-up the workings and in this case it may very well be our season . Bluudy incredible , really , just incredible .

    Still on the bright side , we owe the the beggars big time and that game could be the one where we finish their season and put them where they truly belong , in the Dog house - out house .

    The RGRV experiment finishes this year, it was an obvious case of trying to get more cash from ANZ / SFS and SCG. While we may have got more cash, the results have been poor and in hindsight was a big mistake. Also out some fans offside about taking these games away from 'traditional' grounds.

    Agree 100%
    The lastest for next year is
    5 game at kogarah
    5 at wollongong
    They have 3 bids for the other 2
    That is
    Figi, Perth and Wellington.
    If this is what they go with I will be happy about it.

    IMO Raiders are more a threat to making the 8
    They will beat The Panthers in Canberra
    They will beat The Knights
    And you can bet after tying up the Minor Premiership Bellamy will rest his stars in Round 26 when The Storm play The Raiders in Melbourne

    I still reckon they should all be at Kogarah or the Gong. The Gong more rellevent as a home ground as that's where they live and train but I'd travel if they played at Wembley, Yankee Stadium or Jurasic Park. I reckon the SOO and tests shoud do the Fiji, Perth shit not our club games, honestly who's going to go?

    If we win our games against Penrith and the Dogs and the Cowboys lose to Brisbane and Cronulla, we take their spot.

    The issue is that ANZ is a fiscally responsible place to play. We get paid a six figure sum to play at Olympic Park but have to fork out thousands whenever we play at Kogarah or WIN. I completely agree with you that I'd prefer to have us play at those two venues over anywhere else, but we need to play at least a couple of games at ANZ to fund those games at WIN or Kogarah.

    And, let's be real: we had less than 9000 in the crowd yesterday. If Dragons fans really want games at Jubilee or WIN, we aren't showing it.

    With the results this weekend, the great line from the Godfather keeps playing in my head:

    "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in".

    As a now QLD based Dragon, I wonder what the club would be offered to play some of those 3 games at Suncorp?

    The Dragons have a huge following in SE Qld and I'm always surprised at the crowd split when they play the Broncos there.

    Only a STGI supporter would think that our team will make the 8 given our poor performances over the past dozen or so games.

    Dufty/Mann/Widdop may change the bookies minds next week !

    Do people understand that odds are driven by the punters and not the bookies? If we're at long odds it's because no-one is stupid enough to throw their money away backing us.
